comical and it seems ridiculous. >> bruce, you suggest an alternate strategy which is one bill clinton has talked about and colombia law professors do. which is the president should essentially say, i have the implicit authority to raise the debt ceiling without congress, correct? >> that's right. of course, i'm not a legal scholar, but i do oppose the existence of the debt limit. i even testified before the senate finance committee that we should get rid of it. i think it's a dreadful left over from ancient history that simply creates opportunities for hostage taking by congress, such as the one we're facing right now and our foreign policy, we don't negotiate with hostage takers for a very good reason and i think that we need to get rid of this debt limit. but i'm perfectly willing to go along with the trillion dollar coin, if that's what's necessary to prevent this hostage from being taken. >> so, jeff, take us through the constitutional argument here because the, as i understand it, the point would be the president would say to congress, by choosing to set taxes at a certain level and

holiday, the last time 1997, the second inauguration of president bill clinton. special things the president is going to do on monday, he is going to be using one of martin luther king jr.'s traveling bibles to take the oath of office on, also use a bible that belonged to president lincoln on loan from the library of congress. you know who be giving the invocation? merely evers-williams, the widow of slain civil rights leader medgar evers. >> athena jones joining us live from washington. >> thanks. >>> nearly 30 years since a woman from new york has won miss america. >> your new miss america is -- miss new york! >> there she is, 23-year-old mallory hagen accepting the crown at the miss america pageant in las vegas last night. she tap danced to james brown's "get up off that thing." there were no meltdowns, there were a few firsts. miss iowa let the audience know she has tourette's syndrome and one comment she made is getting a lot of attention on the web. >> i personally know people who have had to go to medical marijuana for their last -- their last resort for their health car
'll be a lot better off. neil: you know, i was just thinking, sabrina, know, of bill clinton when he knew he would be challenged on some of the executive orders he gave and executive actions he took, he was quite aware of the distinct possibility that courts would overturn him, which many of them they did. but the damage was done, and he got what he wanted originally, and to undo it easier said than done after the fact. is this this president's strategy as well? >> i'm wondererring if he just feels extra confident. a lot of people thought obamacare would be overturned, and it was not. neil: true, true. >> here we are seeing the debris that's left in its wake, and it's not good for the economy or people's liberty liberty. so i think this is a president who has a lot of extra confidence. i'm just thankful someone like yourself is actually talking about this because really the conversation all this week has not been about this power grab or executive orde, but about a gender imbalance in the second-cabinet. how unimportant when you consider what we're talking about here. neil: yeah, you know, t
, and pat caddell, former pollster for president jimmy carter, and doug schoen, form pollster for bill clinton. john kerry has a lock. he is a member the boys' club. the others? >> there will be issues and challenges with all three. if i had to bet i bet they all are confirmed and that hagel will be the toughest but ultimately will get through. the larger issue, with brennan going to c.i.a. and with jack lew going to treasury this is the effective consolidation of the white house and the president directly over treasury and c.i.a. and c.i.a. nominally an independent agency. >>gregg: these are corner -- cronies? >> yes and it is worrisome. >>gregg: pat, especially hagel who has said to republicans, troubling things about iran, hamas, hezbollah. >> said troubling things to democrats and not just republicans and he will be the most problematic. we see president obama and his chief of staff will either be biden's or the deputy of tom donnalyn, all white males, to drop the mask of pretense of bipartisanship, pushing the agenda through and the discussion each of them is what we can do in ter
of american progress by the former chief of staff of bill clinton and they have a 13-point list of gun control proposals that they thought through many years ago they're handing to the white house and apparently, according to the post, the white house likely to act on a lot of these. >> we can't get through all 14, universal background check, making military grade assault weapons, ban those, high capacity magazines we do that, and modernize data systems, track gun sales and enforcing existing laws, pretty standard enough, but a list of 13. >> alisyn: yeah, one of the things they are suggesting which will probably anger many people listening, if the president can't get widespread support for some of these proposals, that he act on executive order, in other words, unilaterally, and that would be unfortunate. who knows what the vice-president is going to propose on tuesday when he comes out with proposals, if it turned out that the president were just to steam roll over people and act unilaterally, that, that feels wrong, because if there was ever a time nationally that people are open and recept
interaction of our one of our second producers found. this is back in clinton -- bill clinton facing the exact same kind of charge and railing to andrea mitchell against the bean counters who were, essentially, auditing his diversity record. take a look. >> i think a president's staff and, net ought to look like america. i think it ought to look like america. >> today clinton rejected complaints from women's groups that he hadn't delivered. >> people doing this talking are by and large are talking about quotas and i i don't believe believe in quotas. >> he was visibly angry critics are ignoring subcabinet appointees who are female into they would count against the administration, the bean counters. if i had appointed white men to that position and you know that's true. >> well, a question that we have to ask here is -- if we want to solve this problem and i think we all do, are we talking about combatting what's called "sexism?" for example, is the reason the white house press core has a certain problem with balance of types of people because they're there's people that think that women aren't
: this is from an interview back in 1998 when bill clinton was in the white house. chuck hagel said, "they are representing america. they are representing our lifestyle, our values, our standards. and i think it is an inhibiting factor to be gay -- openly aggressively gave like mr. hormel -- to do an effective job." he has since apologized for those remarks. guest: he is not in the domestic policy division as secretary of defense. i think domestic issues, whether it be guns or abortion or gay rights, -- it is not just that ", but the way. -- it is not just that quote by the way. all of which raises the question of why the president would want him. i think the senate committee in particular have to pay attention to -- given that record, why was the president backing susan rice? why is he so dead set on having senator hagel be secretary of defense? i think he is somebody the president really trust to re- trench the american power. there is going to be a fundamental choice made for the next four years. his nomination is just beginning of that debate. host: isn't figuring where you want to mov
